"Hungry" Huskies Down The Cougars In Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl

It's been a wild mouth at U-Dub.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian leaves abruptly to take the Southern California job, Chris Petersen is hired to take over from Boise State and former Washington quarterback Marcus  Tuiasosopo is name interim head coach and has no idea where he will work next year.

Not the ideal situation but Washington overcame all the chaos to defeat BYU Friday night 31-16 in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

"We wanted it." Tuiasosopo said after the game.

New Washington head coach Chris Petersen did not attend the bowl game and let Tuiasosopo run the show.

I'm sure the new coach liked the results.

"How about our guys here, and this coaching staff." Tuiasosopo said. “Nine wins! ... I’m fired up for them. When all that went down, they regrouped. They wanted to finish as winners. They wanted to finish with nine wins. And they did.”

It was a painful final game as a Husky for quarterback Keith Price.  Playing through what he thought was a broken rib and receiving an injection at halftime, Price was damn near perfect.  

Price's final numbers for the game were 17-22 passing for 123 yards, one interception and one touchdown.

Bishop Sankey ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns to earn bowl offensive MVP honors.

Here are the highlights
